A total success was the first concert in Miami of the popular Cuban singer Erik Iglesias Rodríguez, known as Cimafunk, during the Global Cuba Fest, an event of the FUNDArte project dedicated to promoting the young musicians of the Caribbean nation.

The singer appeared on Saturday as part of his tour of the United States and hundreds of people gathered at the North Beach Bandshell, Miami Beach, to hear this new phenomenon of Cuban music.

"Thanks Miami! GLOBAL WARMING last night! "Wrote the young artist on his Facebook page.

Cimafunk performed with his group songs from his first album "Terapia" with the contagious rhythms of funk and Cuban music.

"It was something tremendous. We finally got to see Cimafunk in Miami. We've been waiting for some time, "Gretel, one of the Cubans who attended the concert with a group of friends, told CiberCuba.

The tour of Cimafunk by the United States, meanwhile, has been organized by the agency Cuba Educational Travel, chaired by Collin Laverty.

In the audience there were many young people who wanted to enjoy the music of this singer whose popularity had crossed from Cuba to Miami for more than a year .

The musician, who left the medical career to devote himself to art, thanked the audience for the warm welcome at this concert.

"Miami is a city where I have many friends who know my music and who have been aware of my latest activities through the networks," he had declared in an interview with the newspaper El Nuevo Herald .

At the Global Cuba Fest, the singer Dayme Arocena also participated , who gave away her ritual songs and jazz rhythms from the albums "Havana Cultura Mix - The Soundclash!", "The Havana Culture Sessions" and "New Era".
